Efficacy of stereotactic radiotherapy for brain metastases using dynamic jaws technology in the helical tomotherapy system

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Dynamic jaws (DJ) are expected to be useful in stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) for brain metastases (BM). The efficacy and optimal dose fractionation were investigated. METHODS In a planning study, 63 treatment plans were generated for the following 3 conditions: 1.0-cm fixed jaws (FJ), 2.5-cm FJ and 2.5-cm DJ. In a clinical study, 30 Gy/3 fr… (More)
